Salvation Army - Anti Gay Marriage November 17, 2004 9:36 PM

**NEW Petition - Anti Salvation Army Racist Org! Let The Federal Executive Branch, Federal Legislative Branch, Federal Judicial Branch & State Local & Tribal Governments know that you want a mandate issued for the dissolution of The Salvation Army and its Affiliates. Tell them we will NOT ALLOW racist, bigoted, embezzling ANTI HUMAN RIGHTS groups to pretend to help those in need in this country while they lie to and deceive us to line their own pockets and push their private agendas! There is a wide array of reasons why people should boycott Salvation Army but allow me to touch on a few reasons here today: In the beginning, the Salvation Army was about personal salvation. As General William Booth's understanding grew, that salvation took on personal, social, and eschatological dimensions. "Salvation from pinching poverty, from rags and misery, must be offered to ALL," he wrote. My Personal Experience During the floods caused by Hurricane Ivan our family was devastated. We live in an area within the designated emergency zone and have been declared by FEMA a legitimate flood disaster victim. Salvation Army returned a contact call made to them for assistance and directed us over 50 miles from our home to receive assistance. After arriving with proof and all the requested documentation we were turned away because my husband is African-American! Even a local TV station taking donations from African-Americans to give to Salvation Army lied to us and said they would straighten things out, but WPXI just the injustice go forward. My husband was accused of being a liar, a leech, and Salvation Army even tried to say the town in which we live didn’t even really exist! Glad to know there is help out there when we need it. I am also oh so happy that money taken from African-American Families is NOT going to help African-Americans in need. What a great “Christian” messages they are sending!
